Flights to Salvador
Presidente Castro Pinto International Airport
Named for a former governor, the Presidente Castro Pinto International Airport is responsible for most of the flights from Joao Pessoa. Four airlines operate at the airport: TAM Airlines, Azul Brazilian Airlines, Avianca Brazil, and Gol Airlines. The airport is less than 9 miles from the downtown area, but you should still give yourself extra time to reach the airport due to traffic. When it comes to vacation planning, Orbitz.com might just be your best friend. The number of deals offered by the website makes it easy and affordable to take a vacation.
Castro Pinto Parking
There are 260 parking spots available at this airport. If you travel during the busy season, you might find that there are no spots open. Your best bet is to look for parking areas outside of the airport, including downtown parking garages and hotel lots. You can also find third-party operators who match you with a reasonably priced parking space offered by a local company.
Traveling by Car or Bus
Joao Pessoa has independent drivers available who transport passengers to the airport. These drivers are similar to cab drivers, but the cars are often in better shape and the driver usually owns the vehicle. Taxis are also available, and the cost of taking a taxi is less than renting a car and driver. An even cheaper option is a bus. The city buses make several airport stops every day, and the bus ride only costs around RS 2,20.
One Onsite Restaurant
The Presidente Castro Pinto International Airport only has one restaurant on-site, which is a small fast food type restaurant. You can find coffee, cold drinks, sandwiches, and basic food here, but this type of food is easy to eat on the go. When you decide that you are ready to fly, go to Orbitz.com and find available flights from Joao Pessoa.
